LAWMA Rewards Outstanding Sweeper

The Lagos Waste Management Authority (LAWMA) has handsomely rewarded an outstanding highway sweeper, Fasasi Raheemat Oluwabukola, on behalf of Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu, incident commander of the state.

Raheemat was sighted and photographed along Dolphin/Osbourne Road, her operational corridor, by Ms. Adebisi Awoniyi, a resident of Dolphin Estate, a photo that later went viral on the social media, few days ago.

Speaking during the brief presentation, the MD of LAWMA, Dr. Muyiwa Gbadegesin, noted that the recognition was to appreciate Raheemat’s constant diligence and impassioned service, as attested by Ms. Awoniyi, who claimed to have regularly observed her, during her daily work-out sessions.

The LAWMA boss noted further, that there was reward for diligent hard work, because one could never tell who was watching at any point in time.

Responding, Raheemat expressed profound gratitude to Mr Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu for the rather unexpected recognition, stressing that it was most unexpected, as she was only doing her duty to the best of her ability.
